IAG to offer Atlanta and Dallas collections

[ August 21, 2013   //   ]

IAG Cargo – the single business created following the merger of British Airways World Cargo and Iberia Cargo – has extended its Cargo Connector small freight collection service to include the catchment areas of Atlanta Hartsfield–Jackson and Dallas Fort Worth international airports. For consignments of less than 200 kilos, freight forwarders in these cities can now opt to have IAG Cargo collect and courier cargo direct from their premises to the airport, at no additional cost, with freight screening arranged as required. It allows forwardersto book cargo at short notice, as well as removing the need for them to pay for their own driver and truck, which can prove costly during busy periods.

Cargo Connector already serves New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London Heathrow. Drivers arrive in IAG Cargo-branded vans and in addition to collecting freight can process additional cargo bookings on the spot. The service is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays inclusive.
